Fresno, California 2021-10-14 21:28:22 –
Cultivated over 25 acres, the cream of this crop is on display for the Halloween season.
“We live in Fresno County, one of the meccas of food and agriculture in the world. This is one of the places where we can spend the day on the farm,” says Sarah Shoffner. ..
Schoffner says the pumpkin patch doubles as a complete farm experience.
“We have barn animals, goats, cows, mini donkeys and chickens,” she said. “There is no asphalt here. There is mud, soil, and all the noise of a real farm.”
Deeply rooted in the valley, Sweet Thistle Farms works with Friday’s fundraising and weekend Fresno Street Eats nonprofits to give back to support local food trucks.
“The pandemic didn’t allow them to raise as much as they normally would, so that’s a way I and the Rocky Oaks Goat Creamery can give back to the community,” Shoffner said.
There are also new hay and photo-worthy backgrounds.
Pumpkin patches are 4-7 days on Fridays and 10-4 days on weekends.
The final day may be October 24th, but there are ways to support family-owned farms all year round.
“On Tuesdays and Thursdays, there are farm stands open where you can receive cheese, nuts, orange juice, jam, goat cheese, flowers, fruits and vegetables from the farm,” Schoffner said.
